Welcome aboard Olddodger,

 

Can you please tell us your real name?

 

I am confident you will get as much enjoyment from boat building as with your trains.

And you will have your grandson helping you.  That is double the fun.

Have you decided yet what your build, wood or plastic, will be? 

 

This is a great site for learning/sharing tips and techniques.

So, when you're ready, feel free to start a buildlog.

If needed, you'll find plenty of help, advise and encouragement from everyone. 

 

I wish you smooth sailing with our gallant crew.

 

Regards,

Anja

Welcome Syd from another fellow modeler still active with the Live Steam train hobby.  I'm new on the forum as well and can say everyone I've encountered has been very welcoming and helpful...I'm certain you'll find the same.

 

What I particularly like is the group accepts new folks at whatever level there are at regarding their ship modelling abilities, beginner or advanced...all here seem to want to provide guidance and assistance to help modelers advance knowledge and skills....what more could one want!

 

Looking forward to seeing your first build log as you start...

 

Best Regards,

Cliff

Welcome to MSW Syd and a welcome to your grandson as well! As a model railroader myself I am certain that you will find the same enjoyment here as you did with the trains. Having someone to share it with is better still! I look forward to seeing what you choose as your first project and wish you the best of luck as you start out.
